"2003 Snickers Hungriest Player Of The Year" Has Record-Setting Night on "Brett Favre Day"
Brett Favre made the governor proud with his record-setting performance in last night's 45-17 rout of the St. Louis Rams. On the day the governor proclaimed "Brett Favre Day" in Wisconsin, Favre started his record 200th consecutive regular season game, threw three TD passes and broke an NFL record he shared with Dan Marino. For his effort, Favre was named the Monday Night Football SNICKERS HUNGRIEST PLAYER for Week 12 as selected by the ABC Monday Night Football broadcast team.
This week SNICKERS will present Favre with a special SNICKERS HUNGRIEST PLAYER Gameball, as well as donate $1,000 to his charity of choice. In addition, all fans who visited the Snickers web site and correctly selected Brett Favre prior to 11:00 PM EST last night will receive a free Snickers bar and be eligible for a trip for two to Super Bowl XXXIV in Jacksonville, FL.
With his seven-yard TD to Bubba Franks in the second quarter, Favre topped 20 TDs for the 11th straight season, breaking the mark he shared with Dan Marino. He also added two more TD passes with throws to Javon Walker and Donald Driver, and finished the night 18-27 passing for 215 yards earning his second SNICKERS HUNGRIEST PLAYER selection. Favre was the SNICKERS HUNGRIEST PLAYER in last year's Monday Night finale when he threw four TD's in a 41-7 win over the Raiders. That performance subsequently earned Brett "2003 SNICKERS HUNGRIEST PLAYER OF THE YEAR" honors in an on-line vote by the fans.
Each week, five players from each team in the Monday Night game appear on Snickers.com, along with a "WILDCARD" for each team. Fans log onto the site, register with a code found inside the wrapper of specially marked Snickers bars, and select a player from the ten nominees, or choose the "WILDCARD" representative of the remaining players on the rosters.
The winner of the Super Bowl trip will be randomly selected later this week from all fans who picked Brett Favre to win the SNICKERS HUNGRIEST PLAYER in last night's game. Throughout the season, Snickers will award 16 Grand Prizes, including Super Bowl Trips, Monday Night Football Weekend Getaways in New York and Miami; a trip to Hawaii for the 2005 Pro Bowl; and 2005 season tickets for the team of choice.
